A software tool Crocodile Hunter is used to find bogus eNodeBs, sometimes referred to as IMSI catchers, cell site simulators, hailstorms, and stingrays. It operates by listening for broadcast messages from every 4G station nearby, figuring out where they are, and keeping an eye out for unexpected behavior.
